Re: Criticism

False. We deny the dualism of "Experiencing" vs. Thinking in the first place. All Thinking is not other than experiencing, so there is no emergence of one from the other. The latter is generally another word for "perceiving", and Cleric already tried to explain to you the polar ...

Re: Criticism

But what's weird is that it turns out that they claim that Awareness/Experiencing is emergent form Thinking. In other words it is possible to think without actually consciously experiencing it. Such view runs into the "hard problem of consciousness" and essentially not much different from...

Re: Criticism

Then please go ahead and point out these "several metaphysical assumptions" we are employing. You won't, Eugene, because you can't, because they don't exist... the Kantian dualism, on the other hand, does exist. Sometimes one must put ego aside and seriously consider the possibility they ...

Re: Criticism

However, it is a metaphysics, it is based on several metaphysical assumptions. One such assumption is that thinking can take you closer to the thing in itself than perceiving via the senses: for instance, that thinking about a beech tree can take you closer to it than the experience of a squirrel w...

Re: Criticism

All of your responses to us display this lack of awareness of how the divide is working in your thinking, including t...

Re: Criticism

Re: Joker destroys Scientific Worldview

Perhaps, this is a Jungian perspective complemented by a Hegelian one. ... Absolute freedom of expression is as much a gift as it is a curse, I guess.
